SOS Vocational Training Centre

SOS Children’s Villages Sri Lanka believes that every youth needs to obtain some sort of a recognized life vocational skill to live independently in the society. This is one of the main concepts of youth empowerment practices which the organization follows over the last decade. SOS Children’s Villages Sri Lanka has established 3 vocational training centers in the country to facilitate this need and supported nearly 1434 under-privileged youth over the course of time to obtain VTA ( Vocational Training Authority) recognized NVQ ( National Vocational Qualification)  level vocational skill. This has the emphasis on developing youth into self-supporting and contributing members of the society. This is done through recognizing the role of the youth in their own development, as well as the role of their families, community, state and other service providers. Youth who are from under-privileged families later can support their own families through the skills they learnt by making it an employment.
